Where is the Extinction Rebellion when a real environmental catastrophe takes place? Busy vandalizing and nuisance-making in the name of a fake “climate emergency”. Meanwhile our forests and national parks are being decimated! MH
Here’s Pam Vernon at Envirowatch Rangitikei with the facts:
Workers report that nothing is alive now … no birds, no insects, nothing! … at recently 1080’d Wilkin River Vlly, Mt Aspiring Ntl Park
This is truly disturbing, especially on the heels of yesterday’s post and the revelations from the Taupo area where a hunter reports the same after SIXTY PLUS YEARS of 1080 treatment. The poison simply is not working, and worse it is decimating our native birds. Kea are nearing extinction (here also) and remember this post also about the 10K birds killed in one drop. When is this madness going to be looked at with independent eyes, independent research and an eye for alternatives. They are aerially treating areas that could be easily trapped while saying they only aerially treat inaccessible places.
Note: if you have similar ‘silent’ stories do add them to our page on topic (link below).
(Martin’s note: Pam has a great site and is a real environmental battler, so please do visit ER and support Pam’s work).
MAKARORA – THE AFTERMATH
By Carol Sawyer
The Makarora area of Mt Aspiring National Park was aerially 1080-poisoned on 15 October, 2019 – the Wilkin, Fish, Blue, Cameron, Makarora and Young Valleys.
Yesterday I was told that the old six-bunk forestry hut at Top Forks, Wilkin River Valley, is being restored, and the workers restoring it are living there while it is restored. They say there is absolutely nothing left alive up there. It is as silent as the grave…. no birds, no insects, NOTHING !
Extraordinarily, even though the area was poisoned only two weeks ago there are NO warning signs on any of the DoC online track information on the Young Valley Track, Cameron Valley Track, Blue-Young Valley Track, etc! There will be dead carcasses and baits in the streams and rivers. Innocent tourist trampers from overseas will drink from the streams.
